Stan's first trip 0f 2022.

 Stan the van is due his MOT and annual habitation check next month. After being snugged up for a few months we thought it best to take him out for some fresh air.  We booked a site half an hour away from home and despite the low overnight temperatures we had a blast.

We stayed at Uphill Wharf , what a great little site. I think 24 pitches all in all so not too big and nicely spaced out. It is a busy area and there is a walk that skirts behind part of the the park so can be a little busy with walkers but other than that great.

Just outside of the site ifs a fab little café, Uphill wharf café bar,  would definitley recommend this if you are in the area. I went for a vegan breakfast, £7.50

This was the normal size, you could have gone for a big breakfast, but honestly this was huge and very tasty. 

After Brunch at the café we walked down to the beach and along into Weston Super Mare.

A very refreshing walk from uphill to Weston along the beach and onto the prom along to Knightstone Island.   Despite having visited here many times I have never actually walked around Knightstone islands. 

After our walk we decided to go onto the pier and get a drink in the tea room at the end of the pier before heading back to site.

Stan the van did great, no major concerns or signs of leaks or damp which is good. Some small jobs need doing but other than that the old man is doing great. I sleep really well in the van and the heating works a treat so we coped with the cold weather and were nice and snug.

I am so grateful that we have Stan, he really does give us the option to go off on a whim. It cost £50 for 2 nights at the site and other than breakfast and a drink we didn't spend anything else as we had taken food with us. 

A weekend well spent.


  1. That does look like a nice break and quite busy considering the time of year. What a good breakfast, it looks delicious.

    1. I was surprised that it was full this time of year.


Advent knitting has commenced.

Well I made it through another week of work. Just today and then I'm free for 2 whole days!  This has been a gentle week. Nothing other ...
